OCEAN PARK - Feather by feather, a life-size model of a California condor is taking shape in Bart Kenworthy's tiny Ocean Park studio.

The bird, which will perch on whale bones, will be cast in bronze and installed at the Port of Ilwaco in November for the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial commemoration. The design is based on an entry from Lewis and Clark's journals and the installation will include a high-relief sculpture of the party's best hunter, Reuben Fields, and other members of the expedition stalking a condor.
